Oh Jan, I am so sorry to hear about this, but am glad that she is being treated. Most likely they have her on (Sp??) Vancomyocin, which is the strongest drug out there (to my knowledge) for MRSA. My son had two severe MRSA infections, the first got into his bone & he had a slight amputation, and the second in his leg, but so bad he was hospitalized on IV.
The good news is that they were able to treat it, and get him clean of the MRSA which had colonized in his body for a few years!
If I learned anything from this, a really good infectious disease specialist is what you want!!
My prayers and thoughts go out to your family and I hope for a quick recovery of your little granddaughter!
